It's a whole new year.
It's a whole new scary collective of 365 days ahead.
I must say, with the current unstable economic situation, a whole new surrounding that I'll be diving into, and a whole new environment for the others in my cohort, I'm guessing 2009 is a year that many are uncertain of. That can be scary, but let us remember that GOD holds the future, HE is always in control and HE has a plan for everyone and everything. Hence, we can always trust in HIM in whatever situation.
Aside from that, I think I should take this opportunity to really reflect on the past year and give thanks to all who have made a difference in 2008.
for her continuous support in this crucial academic year.
for being a source of moral support for me, and for the really great birthday gift. I really like the CD.

Mrs Julia Huang,
just for being a teacher who has so much faith and trust in me.

Melvin Sim, Ee Rong, Ee Wei, Junior, Timothy, and any other PA guy(s) I may have missed out,

for being a great brother in Bass, and in Christ.

Everyone who went on the Bratislava trip,
for the joy, frustration, and everything else that we went through.
There's so many more "Thanks" in '08 that I missed out, but these people have really made an impact in my life in '08, and some even lasting way beyond just '08.
So, Thank you for making a difference.
